Are you a MSc student looking for an internship in the area of sustainability? Do you want to build solid knowledge on sustainability reporting, gain experience in project coordination, as well as research on specific sustainability topics?

Robeco is recognized as a leader in sustainable investing, and we know how important it is to meet the sustainability standards to which we hold companies we invest in. That means, we ‘Walk the Talk’ when it comes to our own operations, which is one of the six pillars of Robeco’s Sustainable Investing strategy.

The Corporate Sustainability Team is looking for an intern to work with and support the team on a broad range of activities for a period of 4-6 months on a full-time basis (40 hours/week with the flexibility to work up to two days a week from home). We are a dynamic and motivated team headquartered in Rotterdam. We have cultivated a unique team spirit that is both impact-driven and purpose-oriented.
